of energy in the world, needs to redouble its efforts. the pentagon is already moving in the right direction, but it's not just about saving money in the long term. it's providing operational flexibility and reducing velarde nurblet from inefficient and dangerous fossil fuels. those fuel tanker trucks in afghanistan and iraq might as well have had great big bull's eyes on them for terrorists. the military knows this, and we should give maximum support even in a time of gradually reducing pentagon budgets. this will pay dividends for defense and to the family budget if the pentagon gets it right. it's clear that america is ready and equal to this challenge. the president has signaled his interests in leadership. the question is whether congress is equal to the challenge, ready with innovation, cooperation and leadership. the speaker pro tempore: the chair recognizes the gentleman from texas, mr. poe, for five minutes. mr. poe: mr. speaker, in a remote region of algeria at an oil and gas facility in the dark of night before the sun rose, workers from all over the world were getting ready to si
by the pentagon when it was revealed that he sent e-mails to kelly that some officials found flirtatious. >> so the general allen situation, david, just your gut on that. what a mess. >> i don't know what the internet version of a tempest in a teapot is, but this is one where the pentagon, i think, rushed to investigate behavior, where there was very little evidence of wrongdoing. the fbi and the justice department had been reviewing all these e-mails, as part of their investigation of general petraeus. and they threw them all over the pentagon. the pentagon goes, geez, what do we do now? and they decided, gosh, i guess we better investigate them. so the inspector general at the pentagon was ordered by secretary panetta from his plane, he's traveling and says, gosh, we better do the investigation. so that's been rolling along. and there was never a thought to be evidence of real wrongdoing. general allen has been held up. he's our commander in kabul. he's a very fine general. and so it's good that this finally ended today. >> so what we've got, 9:00 eastern time, in about 15 minutes, the bengha
. >> well, new reaction today to the pentagon's decision to lift the ban on women in combat, which could open up thousands of front line military positions as soon as this year. some critics of the policy though they say that the mixing of genders on the battlefield is a dangerous experiment. advocates though say that the move -- women have already proved themselves in the line of fire. steve centanni is live in washington with more on this. hi, steve. >> that debate continues in women over combat. even though the policy has now changed to acknowledge the reality in today's military. women have been serving in certain combat roles for years. but with the stroke of the pen just last week. outgoing defense secretary leon panetta made it official. women can serve alongside men on the front lines. some opponents say this could lead to problems with unit cohesion and combat readiness. >> my issue here is mixing the genders in infantry units, armor units and special forces units is not a positive. there are many distracters there which puts a burden on the small unit combat leaders, and actual
here in our country, there are new development this is morning in the national debate over the pentagon's decision to lift the ban on women in combat. some of the critics object to the policy, claiming women lack the physical strength to serve in the front lines and mixing genders in combat is not a good idea. but adhaveicates say women should be given the chance to prove themselves, noting that many are serving in combat-related missions with distinction and bravery, on behalf of a grateful nation. good morning and welcome to a brand-new hour of america's news headquarters. >> jamie: great to have you here. more news as the gender barrier fall, thousands ever front-line military roles could open up to women, as soon as this year. but some insist, men special women won't be able to serve effectively when they are working side by side. steve centanni looking at this. >> reporter: the debate continues, even though the policy has changed to acam the reality of today's military. women have been serving in certain combat roles for years. but with the stroke of a pen, last week, outgoing defe
. also on immigration, on internally, even on downsizing the pentagon. i think that will be the president's second term agenda. >> chris: we'll talk about guns in the second segment but i want to talk about debt and the budget. brit, house republicans, they have be busy, too, and held a retreat, in williamsburg and came up with a new strategy which is basically to punt on the debt ceiling. not make the fight about the debt ceiling, pass the three-month extension into april and, instead, make their stand either on march 1, when the automatic sequestration, $100 billion in spending cuts takes effect or march 27 when the government runs out of money. good idea? >> i think so, i think the debt ceiling struggle is probably a loser. the public has been convinced i think to some extent by what amounts to false information, that flows out of the white house and other quarters and throughout too much of the media, that the failure to raise the debt limit would mean an automatic default on international debt which is not true, but, nonetheless, scary. and, i think they didn't want to face that. the

-range ballistic missile with a nuclear warhead last month. >>> the pentagon meanwhile offering limited support to french troops as they continue to fight islamic militants in mali. transport planes are helping move men and gear into the west african country but officials insist the american footprint on the ground will stay small. france also asking for help refueling its warplanes but president obama has not yet made a decision on whether he will authorize the use of u.s. aerial tankers. he's asking for more information from france on its overall plans. the fear is that more u.s. involvement could endanger american personnel and facilities in the region if we come to be seen as a cocombatant in that conflict. then back here at home, national rifle association chief wayne lapierrre is keeping up his combative stance with president obama, now attacking the inaugural address. in a speech in reno last night lapierrre accused the president of attacking supporters of the second amendment saying universal background checks are good for two things, either taxing gun owners or taking their guns away.
that the pentagon may have plans for a surgical strike on iran's nuclear facilities. the president of a foundation that focuses on nuclear weapons policy, joe thank you so much for being here. we have two issues to take up. let's begin with iran. what do you think of this? it only makes sense but to hear it from ehud barak, a lot of people are paying attention that u.s. has plans for a surgical strike on their facilities. what do you make of that. >> most experts interpreted that as israel sort of backing away from a threat of launching a full-scale military attack itself. he was saying, there's a lot of other possibilities here. we don't have to go in with a sledge hammer. this is a word he used. you can go in with a scalpel. the u.s. has military scalpels it's prepared. this sosk true. options that would perhaps take out a single facility or a critical node in the infrastructure. this is a good sign for us that the israelis are willing to give diplomacy more of a chance. you heard senator kerry in his testimony just this week to be secretary of state asserting that he wants to give diplomacy a c
recruiter. i have gone to the pentagon in support of the secretary of -- i'm sorry, sergeant major of the army in the 1980's so i'm going to say this and quantify by saying, on a security level, i think secretary clinton handled this very well. in the history of the united states, so much information is being demanded, that breaches security for the department of defense and all the other agencies within the military that i don't think these senators are aware of what they are asking her to divulge. when you say, why wasn't the video available? some information i classified -- is classified to a certain degree that they can't release it immediately. when we have people on foreign soil, our soldiers and marines, their jobs are limited by the act here in the united states and they know they can't go out there and say, hey, you guys are waving these flags, get away or to shoot them. they can't do that. so, to me, naive attitude that the senators who asked those hard questions were asking -- ludicrous. no way they should have been allowed to give responses immediately or to have firsth
. pentagon reporters say the policy shift is just semantics -- a reflection rather of what is already happening on the ground. women have been serving alongside their male counterparts in danger zones for years. the exclusion policy prohibits women from serving directly in combat, but there have been 152 female troops killed in what are defined as quote, support roles in iraq and afghanistan. now there are 250,000 jobs open to women that weren't open before. there may still be some positions that the military considers inappropriate for women, and the officials have until january 2016 to carve out her to exceptions. 14% of our american tear personnel are women. and north korea plans to bring out more missiles samed at the us. they are reacting to a sanction against them. north korea often issued these kind of threats, but doesn't have the technology to carry them out at this point. we're back after the break. the headlines. (vo) in the minefield of the nation's gun control debate, this could be the most polarizing issue. >> anybody can claim stand your ground and t
that company wants. martha: the growing debate on the pentagon's decision to lift the ban allowing women in combat. we have a panel coming up on that, a great panel. is this the right decision? a lot of emotions and thoughts on this one. stick around after the break. x martha: new questions on a major about-face for the military as leaders formally lift the ban on women serving in combat positions. the change opens up hundreds of thousands of front line positions possibly to females, but even veterans really are split on what they think about this decision. list to some of this. >> lifting this restriction is going to allow those women who want to fight in combat positions to try and try out for them. if they can make it, good for them. there's a lot of women who won't make it. you know what? there are a lot of men who can't mack it either. >> what you said, bill, if they're not physically capable of that doing what a man would do, a wounded soldier or marine needs to be dragged off, medevaced, needs to be pulled can i count on the female soldier to do the same thing? if we look at wome
additional the of the pentagon and that is government-wide. so why would we do that? where is the leadership in the congress that we are going to get this stopped? we have a special subcommittee to look at this, oversight, look at the bad actors, look at the bad actors in government coming and we are going to demand the people that make those decisions get fired and the countries that are not performing get paid back. none of that happens. so you can and defraud the federal government coming you can outperform on a contract and you can do it with impunity and that's because members of congress are basically not willing or are inexperienced to not know that you ought to be able to hold people accountable for what they say they are going to do. whether it is a federal employee, a procurement employees or the company that's providing it and that is flexible that happened this week my father started a business for the products and i started a plastic lens and interocular lenses division of that and i did that actually in southern virginia. i lived up here for ten years from the summer of '69 to
to the tune of i think around $89 billion that are going to be put on the pentagon and domestic spending. they're dumb cuts. we are not looking at specific programs in evaluating their worth and eliminating some and keeping others. we just like, chop. this is no way to budget for a nation, and i hope we can delay the sequester. but it's coming up soon. republicans have vowed they want even more cuts maybe in addition to the sequester to negotiate, and i think we should remind everybody we've already had $1.7 trillion in cuts and we just did $600 billion in new revenue. that's about $2.3 trillion, mr. speaker, and, you know, how much more -- how much more cutting do we need to do, particularly when we talk about vital programs for americans? so, mr. speaker, i think if we're going to do cuts we should cut things that we really don't need. for example, medicare part d, passed in 2003, prohibits medicare from negotiating drug prices with the pharmaceutical companies. now, the veterans administration does negotiate for drug prices all the time, but medicare is prohibited from doing so. basically i
underscored a new terror threat taking place right now in north africa. our pentagon correspondent, barbara star, is joining us. what are you picking up on this front, barbara? >> well, wolf, officials that i am talking to are saying the old 9/11 era of al qaeda spending years planning one single big attack, that is over. and this new era may leave the u.s. intelligence community struggling to catch up. mokhtar belmokhtar is part of a generation of terrorists rising across north africa, tied to al qaeda, but operating in very different ways. >> i argue they are more dangerous to both the united states and our allays. >> this is an era of a new threat, a threat to western interests across the region. >> reporter: the challenge for the cia? >> we can't keep saying, well, it's just yemen, it's just mali, it's just benghazi, it's just tunisia. can't do that. >> what we're seeing is a blending of different types of operatives and groups coming together at different times. >> reporter: africa-based groups don't seem to need central leadership and osama bin laden. militants have made advances. the
military leaders the pentagon to cut from unsuccessful and outdated programs and put more money into the most successful and important programs. with that said, the only thing worse than the defense cuts and sequestration is no cuts at all. if we don't have the sequestration cuts at the top line revenue level went we will increase the debt ceiling with almost nothing to show for it. part of the reasons why the house republicans this week, extended the debt ceiling for three months to feel out paul ryan and his team to draft a budget that gets us balanced in 10 years but also protects the department of defense from further cuts because they have already been cut by $500 billion. >> do you get the idea, do you get the sense that americans are tired of world business. that doing some business here at home is gaining traction with people. are they world leadership weary? is the american hour ticking to a close? >> i think there is a degree of war weariness among the american people. it is not surprising. when your commander in chief is war weary you will be as well. when i was leadi
